Plant protection products


Plant protection products are used to protect plants from plant pests, diseases and weeds and to regulate plant growth. Because plant protection products are intended for controlling or exterminating something, they are harmful and may also have adverse effects on human health or the environment. To prevent these effects, plant protection products are carefully evaluated before they are authorised. It is important to keep in mind that only plant protection products authorised in Finland may be used and marketed in the country.

Plant protection products are controlled by the Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency (Tukes).
